If You Do One OTHER Thing in London This Week…

Our Tuesday slot in which we point you in the direction of other great happenings and events in our great city. A new exhibition, a gig, a museum, a pop-up-shop – the best of London within a few minutes of a London Walks walking tour.




LW’s Karen writes…




We’ve all said it: “Oh, I always meant to go to such-and-such-a-place but never quite got around to it.”

For me it was the Museum of Brands. And how delighted I am to be able to say “was”.

I finally visited last week and was met with not only a vividly colourful, but also a lovingly detailed history of our consumer society stretching back to the 1890’s. 

Founder Robert Opie has amassed a collection numbering nearly 12,000 items – amongst which I can guarantee that everyone will find their own advertising Madeleine moment. Informative and lots of fun.
